    The All-22 shows hot and cold Tua, he needs to and will get better, but do they really need to scrutinize every movement he makes?

    For fuck’s sake…one play he missed Sherfield near the 5 yard line, looked like he moved to quickly to avoid pressure, causing poor mechanics. He may have gotten hurt, if he used proper mechanics

    There’s a reason Herbert makes plays on 4th down. He didn’t get it done on earlier downs

    No QB is perfect, and none need to be

  2. naplesfan2010 says:

    According to the Associated Press, McDaniel became the second coach in NFL history to win a game against a coach who has at least 321 wins more than him. The other was Dave Wannstedt (12 wins), who defeated Don Shula (334 wins) and the Dolphins on Nov. 13, 1994, while coaching Chicago.

  3. naplesfan2010 says:

    Howard deflected a pass in the endzone that was intercepted by Holland on New England’s first possession. It was Howard’s 37th pass defended since 2020 – most in the NFL in that span – and Holland’s third career interception in just his 17th career game.

  4. naplesfan2010 says:

    Defensive end Emmanuel Ogbah got to Mac Jones for his first sack of the season. He’s led Miami in each of the past two years in sacks with nine in both 2020 and 2021. He’s part of just a trio AFC players, including Pittsburgh Steelers linebacker T.J. Watt and Cleveland Browns defensive end Myles Garrett, with at least nine sacks in each of the past two seasons.

  5. naplesfan2010 says:

    Baldinger says he thinks X batted that ball TO Jevon, not randomly, because he just knew Holland would be there.

    It looked like a damn volleyball set to me.

  6. naplesfan2010 says:

    do ya think the Melvin Ingram signing might pay off?

  7. bailbondmike says:

    Man, that girl was super cute and funny as hell. Humorously clever!

    Thanks for posting that. Hope she does one every week!

  8. steveccnv says:

    Jones and Holland blitzes will be key on Sunday, contain Jackson and make him stay in the pocket

  9. Tim Knight says:

    Our defense always give up some yards but then they blow it up.

    HC Mike McDaniel Wednesday 9/14 media availability thread
    11:03 AM · Sep 14, 2022
    ·Twitter Web App

    Travis Wingfield
    Replying to
    Coach says Jackson’s ankle is a day-by-day thing, not broken, but says that ankles are tricky and they’ll have to monitor it. Austin is working hard to get back
    Travis Wingfield
    Replying to
    On Tua: Tua hasn’t been satisfied at all so he keeps building. It’s his first year in the offense and first time we’re working together so I want to see him focus on the stuff that he was frustrated with, but also want to see his confidence continue to grow.
    Travis Wingfield
    Replying to
    Coach on difficulty defending speed on O: You can’t just be a fast guy. When you’re fast and you can play strong and have a diverse route tree, it’s an issue because you can expand the field/defense faster
    Travis Wingfield
    Replying to
    Coach says they’re hoping so with regards to Eric Rowe’s availability this week. Says Rowe was locked in and really wanted to be out there with his teammates.
    Travis Wingfield
    Replying to
    Coach on Kohou’s debut: Says he could just tell on Kader’s face this week that he’s coming out of his shell a bit. Coach thinks Kohou just wanted to prove himself before he opened up a bit, but Kader has been proving himself to his teammates and coaches every day.
    Travis Wingfield
    Replying to
    Coach says that he sets it up where his coaches are the head coach of their particular group when asked about Josh Boyer and the input they both have on the defense. Talks about trusting and delegating (even mentioned earlier it helps him get a little more sleep).

  12. Tim Knight says:

    The only other QB to go 4-0 against Bill Belichick besides Tua is John Elway.

    • steveccnv says:

      Not sure which team losing Pitt or NE helps us more, so I’ll go with the cheats to lose just, because I hate them

      Trubisky is horrible though, so I expect the cheats to win

      Way to pull that out of your ass Barry, I mean why make a general assumption, that means nothing

      We could see Barry write an article with good content top, but I’ll put that in the Longshot category

  20. Mike E. says:

    Dolphins head coach Mike McDaniel would not commit to LT Terron Armstead (ankle) and RT Austin Jackson (ankle) playing in Week 2.
    Jackson’s ankle injury has improved, per McDaniel, though he remains a question mark for this Sunday against the Ravens. Missing both tackles against a ferocious Baltimore front seven that pressured Joe Flacco throughout their Week 1 victory in New York could put Tua Tagovailoa and the Miami offense in a tough spot. Pro Football Focus graded Miami’s pass blocking as the eighth worst in Week 1 following a 2021 season in which the offensive line struggled weekly to protect

  21. Mike E. says:

    🍺 – Stanger

  22. CavalierKong says:

    Hopefully it’s not too bad with Armstead. He did go back into the game after his injury.

    “Armstead, one of the team’s prized offseason acquisitions, missed two plays against the New England Patriots on Sunday before returning to the game after being evaluating in the medical tent. While his injury was not reported in the press box on game day, Armstead appeared to sustain some sort of leg injury.”

  23. naplesfan2010 says:

    jeez he missed 2 plays.
    Wonder what it is that makes some guys constantly get nicked up like that?

  25. stangerx says:

    Kader Kohou — shouldn’t he be a nickle back?

  26. bailbondmike says:

    Three starters were missing: FB Patrick Ricard, DL Calais Campbell and OLB Justin Houston.
    My guess would be vet rest.

  27. Rockphin says:

    why does my oven have a “rapid pre-heat” button? Can you guys think of a situation where you would say “Nah, take your time pre-heating” Why is this not the base option?????

    • bailbondmike says:

      Uses more energy? don’t know

    • stangerx says:

      Sounds like one for Kong, but guessing has to do with energy conservation.

      • CavalierKong says:

        The way I understand it, rapid preheat uses all the oven elements at once along with the fan, so I’d assume standard preheat is about energy conservation.

        It might be said, well if it heats up that much quicker, isn’t it 6 one way and half a dozen the other? I assume the data would suggest otherwise.

        On my dumb oven, the rapid preheat function kicks off when the oven reaches a balmy 175 or so, then goes into normal preheat, so screw that function anyway, lol.

      • stangerx says:

        Might just depend on how much foreplay a given oven needs. 🙂

      Am I reading that right that Armstead would have practiced full if not for vet rest? Meaning he has a little toe issue, but it wouldn’t stop him from practicing?

    • naplesfan2010 says:

      I agree but some think because of the 2 HC’s records of success, that their teams have a certain name recognition with casual followers of sport, as in EVERYBODY’s heard of those 2 guys.

    • naplesfan2010 says:

      Personally I think the NFL is throwing a bone to Flo.
      And to the steelers for taking him in to help get the heat off the NFL.

    • naplesfan2010 says:

      There’s also the undercurrent of “last season for BB” drama
      and the fascination of watching “the Fall of the Mighty.”

  36. naplesfan2010 says:

    McDaniel said he was so late getting several plays in that Tua had to call plays himself or there would not have been time to get everybody lined up.

  37. naplesfan2010 says:

    Gaskin did not get a single snap last week.

  38. naplesfan2010 says:

    Maybe we should put Kohou on Mark Andrews and see if we can hold him down to 50 yards.

  39. Tim Knight says:

    I heard the Packers have lost their entire OL so far. Yikes!

  40. Tim Knight says:

    How are we the #1 seed in the AFC?

    • CavalierKong says:

      It’s silly, but fun.

      We’re ahead of the Chiefs because they played out of conference.

      We’re ahead of the Bills because we’re 1-0 in the division so we have a better division record.

      We’re ahead of the Ravens and Browns because they are eliminated by the Steelers in their division.

      We’re ahead of the Steelers and Chargers because of a better combined points for and points against (bigger margin of victory).

      Woohooo!!! #1 seed!!!

  41. Rockphin says:

    Kong speaks truth. LOL at least until tomorrow night we are #1 seed.

  42. Rockphin says:

    I would LOVE for them to score 40 while keeping the Ravens to under 20 but I can’t believe yet. That is why I picked the turd emoji to win in Howie’s list

  45. Mike E. says:

    Is it possible that we win Sunday and end up not the #1 seed? Not that I’m taking this seriously or anything . . .

  46. mf13ss says:

    I’m pretty sure we’ll have Armstead (toe) for this Sunday. Hopefully, that ankle takes a turn for the better for A. Jackson come this Sunday.

    • Tim Knight says:

      One thing I noticed and it’s not perfect or anything but even in pass pro our OL attack and not sit back on their heels.

  47. Tim Knight says:

  48. mf13ss says:

    Tim, whatever happened to that British cat who wrote “Emails from an Asshole”? I forget his name, but he was hella funny, man! David something, right?

  49. mf13ss says:

    Call it a ‘feeling’… I’ve a feeling that Mike Gesicki is going to have himself a day this Sunday against the Ravens.

    If the Ravens want to blitz us all day as they had the stej last week, we’re going to throw down the seam (Gesicki) as Cheetah and Penguin keep DBs occupied on the boundaries.

    *M13 Thoughts*

    • Mike E. says:

      If our O-line is compromised, Gesicki might not play much at all. We’ll have to see how Armstead and Jackson progress during the week.

    • Tim Knight says:

      Joe Flacco is as mobile as a stationary bush. Not that Tua is a great runner or anything, but he’s way more mobile than a stick. LOL

    One thing I noticed and it’s not perfect or anything but even in pass pro our OL attack and not sit back on their heels.
    I noticed that as well especially with Armstead. In pass pro, he goes out and attacks his man instead of letting him come in to possibly push him into the pocket. With him attacking in pass pro on the play action fakes, the DE has to hesitate, thinking it’s a passible run play.

  54. naplesfan2010 says:

    yeah Austin Jackson commented on this in TC.
    something about McDaniel’s offense letting the OL fire out on every snap,
    so giving him a feeling of being active,
    not waiting to be attacked.

    Of course Armstead has always just naturally done this.
    He handled Judon like he weighed 185.

  55. pheloniusphish says:

    “ Dolphins quarterback Tua Tagovailoa has had the number of some of the NFL’s best coaches.

    After improving to 4-0 in his career against Bill Belichick’s Patriots on Sunday, Tagovailoa is 7-1 against head coaches who have won the Super Bowl. That includes two wins over Jon Gruden’s Raiders and one over Sean Payton’s Saints, in addition to a loss to Andy Reid’s Chiefs.

    According to NFL Research, Tagovailoa’s .875 winning percentage against Super Bowl-winning head coaches is the best in NFL history among quarterbacks who have started at least six games against Super Bowl-winning head coaches.” (PFT)

    • naplesfan2010 says:

      THAT’s a franchise QB type record.

      • steveccnv says:

        Except it isn’t accurate, he didn’t beat Jon Gruden’s Raiders twice, as he didn’t play against them last year and we lost, and you could say he didn’t beat them even once as Fitz came in a pulled the rabbit out of his hat in 2020

    Bengals’ Elizabeth Blackburn replaces Dolphins owner Stephen Ross on NFL international committee
    Chris Roling

    Elizabeth Blackburn of the Cincinnati Bengals will replace Miami Dolphins owner Stephen Ross on the NFL’s international committee in 2022.

    Ross, who had penalties handed down on him last month by the NFL over tampering allegations involving Tom Brady, was removed from three different committees, according to Ben Fischer of Sports Business Journal.

    Jets owner Woody Johnson took over Ross’ spot on the finance committee and he was not replaced on the media committee.

    • steveccnv says:

      Not that I want Ross on this committee, but the NFL has some strange ways of covering things up and how they deal with issues is really more political, than anything else

      What Ross did with tampering was no different, than any other team does, the NFL had to throw Flores a bone to shut him up, so they made up these tampering charges

  58. CavalierKong says:

    Chase Edmonds touches against NE. A couple of whiffs on blocks by Alex Ingold in here at the 1 minute and 1:53 mark

  59. naplesfan2010 says:

    The reporters at the press conferences always try to catch the HC in a bad light.
    Like, this question is trying to pick at a communication lapse.

    (CB Kader Kohou after the game said he had no idea if he was up or down, he just figured he saw the pads in his locker and he went out there. He didn’t even know that… he thought…?)

    That’s just kinda snarky.

  60. naplesfan2010 says:

    But McDaniel just breezes right past the rudeness and turns it into a teachable moment about how real life is on a football team.

    His answer:
    – “He’s a rookie. Our proper protocol is to individually seek out those not active before the game. So we don’t go to each player and be like, ‘congratulations, you’re active.’ (laughter) So (it was a) rookie deal. That doesn’t surprise me. I think we want especially our rookies to assume that they’re playing every day because they’ve got to max out their preparation and catch up to the curve that’s the rest of the veterans in the National Football League.”

  61. Rockphin says:

    Sean Payton said he thinks Tua will be benched for Bridgewater before the end of the season and that they will be drafting a new QB next season.

    I hate the damn hate, but I am still pissed they passed over Herbert. (archives show I was all in on Herbert and against Tua being picked)

    • Rockphin says:

      (this is the guy we lost a first round pick over tampering with)

      • naplesfan2010 says:

        Sean Payton is an expert, however, so a comment like that from him is very troubling.

      • steveccnv says:

        Fuck Payton, he’s just homering for his guy Teddy, not sure why the sour grapes

        We already have our franchise QB on the roster, if Tua doesn’t get it done, Skylar will

    • naplesfan2010 says:

      I too wanted Herbert, but I think Tua makes it through this year just fine and we stick with him for the ’23 season.

      He had a 104 passer rating, didn’t lose the game, didn’t throw an INT, and the strip sack was totally not his fault.

      The guy playing his first game at Center completely whiffed and let that rusher through (fortunately he recovered the fumble.)

      • steveccnv says:

        Tua faced the same adversity in game 1 as he did last year, the difference was he had Tyreek to get him out of some jams

        The OL is better, but still no where near average, middle of the pack, running game is better, but also not where it needs to be

  62. steveccnv says:

    I’d like to say I wanted Herbert, but he was bad at Oregon, watched him live, didn’t see why all the hype, watched tape saw a slow release, especially compared to Tua, and accuracy issues

    There was one week, a couple of weeks before the draft, that I was all in on Herbert, because of his bowl game and SR Bowl, then I went back to Tua

    Herbert still has some issues winning, but with Mack and Bosa I’d say that’s not going to be a problem this year, they’ll make the playoffs

  63. steveccnv says:

    Rainbows and unicorns, candy and nuts…these guys will do anything, write anything to bring negativity

    Happy 61st Birthday to Dan Marino.
    I think he was born in ’61.

    • steveccnv says:

      Yes, that’s correct. I used to spend a couple of weeks at my uncle’s house in Pittsburgh for the summers while in HS

      It was a big deal up there when Danny committed to Pitt, they knew all about him from his time at Central Catholic, he was all over the sports page

  65. Rockphin says:

    Well, I wished to start the season at the top of the division / conference and so far so good. Still # 1 seed. LOL!

    That is why I hope we score a bunch of points this weekend (Beside just winning)

    Unfortunately I feel we are going to revert to our typical performance against Baltimore.

    • steveccnv says:

      Depends on if we can contain Jackson again

      If we do the O will do enough to win

      If Jackson can run around and dictate, he’s the same as Josh Allen unstoppable

      • naplesfan2010 says:

        Harbaugh is not going to let us do the blitz packages we did last year that took over the game. But Jackson is susceptible to being confused pre-snap.

        Another bad thing for us is that the Ravens might have JK Dobbins back.
        Hopefully, he is at least rusty if not still compromised.

        They also have Kenyan Drake which they did not have last year.
        His speed must be respected, because if he gets loose,
        he can go house on us.

  66. steveccnv says:

    I’m not top worried about Jackson missing this game, we have options with Little and Hunt

    Armstead seems like he’s playing, so I think the D decides this game

    • CavalierKong says:

      As long as we don’t turn the ball over, I think our offense will be ok. The Ravens will get pressure in this game, so protecting the ball and letting our D work with room is paramount.

      We also can’t get down big early and let the Ravens play the majority of the game on the ground. We need to make Jackson throw it.

      We do those two things and I love our chances to leave Baltimore with a win.

  67. naplesfan2010 says:

    It’s also a road game for us. We need to take that crowd out of it ASAP.

    I’m hoping that McDaniel was actually keeping our offense under wraps last week, since we did not need much to beat NE, at least not the way the game went.

    By this I mean I think against the Ravens, our best plan might be to score in bunches early so as to make Jackson beat us passing, because our secondary is not going to get beat like the jest DBs got beat.

    I think the Ravens don’t have a great secondary themselves, right?
    Will Peters be back and fully ready?

  68. Rockphin says:


    • CavalierKong says:

      lol, awesome, too bad that one was called back on a roughing the passer. My wife and I argued about this one. I thought the impact was to his chest area, she said it was a good call. Seeing it from this angle, it’s close but she may have been right.

    — Iggy on being inactive…. don’t like his game but he is a good guy.

  80. CavalierKong says:

    The twice vs the Raiders thing threw things off, it was actually once vs the Raiders and once vs the Rams. Of course, like was mentioned, in the Raiders game he was bailed out by Fitz.

    Pets x4
    Rams x1
    Saints x1
    Raiders x1
    Reid – loss

  81. Tim Knight says:

    Lamar Jackson saying they’ll have answers for the Cover 0 is not as easy as he may think. Because it’s a defense that can morph in and out of it. It may look like that pre-snap and then we drop more guys into coverage. It can also go from Cover 0 to Cover 3 by dropping Holland back deep before the snap.

  82. steveccnv says:

    Ravens dominate at practice today (against them selves)

    • Tim Knight says:

      I guess they could have also said the Ravens kick the shit out of themselves in practice today. LOL

      This will be a good test for our team as the Ravens are usually a tough and well coached team. It’s also on the road.

  83. son of a son of a shula says:

  86. steveccnv says:

    Mike, what’s up with the Mets? Are all their players 5’8″ 250

  87. son of a son of a shula says:

    Draft Kings says if you bet all your team has to do is go up by seven points at anytime and you win.
    That can be a tricky bet unless your team takes the ball and goes right down and scores. A low scoring field goal game makes that a tough bet.
    I’ll take Chiefs to do it tonight.

    I think these are two of the few teams Fitzpatrick has never played for

    SON-OF-A-SON. You going down to Schnellenberger Field to see UCF @ FAU on Saturday?? One of my doctors wants to see me on Saturday, so I’ve had to settle for watching the game on the CBS Sports Network (Ch 221 Directv) this time. Probably just as well because your boys are favored by 8 points and should win this one fairly easily.
    Somewhat surprised to learn that the Ravens’ secondary is really beat-up!! Right now I’m leaning to picking the Dolphins this time, even though the game is in Crab Cake City.

    • son of a son of a shula says:

      No I’m not going and I doubt it’s an easy win UCF likes to hurt themselves too much. They aren’t what we were expecting so far.

    It’s seamless, no buffering or lagging, the quality of the video is top-notch, and I wish NFL.bite worked this well. No complaints thus far.

    I really don’t care who wins this game, but I’m expecting a great game… perhaps an early ‘game of the year’.
